The Building was lovely and full of character, with all the mod-cons you would need. The location was beautiful too with some nice walks and pubs in easy access. We were a group of 24 but Rachel was really accomodating in arranging beds/sofa beds to suit our needs. Big Thank you to the Rachel and co. for a comfortable stay, would highly recommend!

Henmore Cottage has it's own parking right outside in a courtyard. The owners live in the house nearby and provided a nice warm welcome. The cottage great and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. These cottages are great inside and felt like a home from home. We would recommend staying at Stainsborough Hall and will book again!
